Get Involved

Rooted in God’s earth, we envision a just society and a creative, open-hearted church

We strive to be a Eucharist-centred, diverse and inclusive Christian community promoting life in abundance, wellbeing and dignity for all.

We try to put our faith into action by educating ourselves and speaking out on issues of injustice, especially concerning refugees, asylum, earth and racial justice, and LGBTQ+ issues. 

We offer hospitality and accompaniment to people going through homelessness or living on low incomes. 

We seek to be a welcoming space for people to reflect, create, debate.

We aim to ever increasingly align our income generation and expenditure with our vision, and our values of Contemplation, Adventure, Courage, Action and Kindness.

You can explore some of our work for Earth and Social Justice in the images and videos below, and please consider donating to our Solidarity Fund to support our advocacy and outreach work.

And if you want to get more actively involved in our projects, you can sign up below for ChurchSuite where we manage our rotas and volunteer teams.
